Chelsea Striker Ike Ugbo Looks Destined For Another Loan Spell

Chelsea Striker Ike Ugbo Looks Destined For Another Loan Spell Chelsea and Nigeria-eligible striker Ike Ugbo could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge this summer as a loan deal looks inevitable.

Though LampardĀ  never hid his desire to give academy products the chance to be part of his team, the 20-year-old centre-forward appears far from being in the Blues squad list for next season as he was dropped from the gaffer's pre-season squad.

From the information gathered by allnigeriasoccer.com, Ugbo currently trains with players who are destined to complete their respective loan deals before the end of the ongoing transfer period.

This means that the youngster will likely join a club where regular first team action will be guaranteed during the 2019-20 season.

After his inability to impress Lampard during their 1-1 draw against Bohemians last week, the youngster will need to follow the footsteps of two Nigeria-eligible players, Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham, who spent last season on loan at Derby County and Aston Villa respectively.

With their awe-inspiring showings for their respective clubs throughout last season, both players are back to the Blues first-team setup and they are set for important roles under Lampard's tutelage.

Having played in 30 League one matches, it is believed that the young man has all it takes to feature regularly for any Championship team come next season.
